What do travel, food and a limitless budget have in common? The most expensive dishes in the world.
Food is meant to be enjoyed, no matter what the price. If you have the cash to spend, and a bucket list to work with, here are some items you’ll want to add to your menu.
$3.95 Million Strawberries at Arnaud's in New Orleans
Only those with an unlimited expense account can afford this one. Why would anyone pay this much for strawberries? Because you’re not really paying for the strawberries, but a 7-carat pink diamond ring. It was part of an exclusive proposal package until the specific ring was discontinued.
$25,000 Frrrozen "Haute" Chocolate at Serendipity 3 in New York City
This classic ice cream sundae is served in a golden goblet. You can Instagram it all you want and you can take it home with you as a souvenir of the most expensive ice cream sundae you ever had and ever will have.
$5,000 FleurBurger 5000 at Fleur in Las Vegas
Think of the priciest burger you’ve ever ordered. It would never top this one. This is no ordinary burger at your local restaurant. Knocking the $2000 “Absolutely Ridiculous Burger” from Mallie's Sports Grill & Bar in Detroit, completely off the list, this Japanese beef burger is mixed with foie gras and truffle crazy. First it’s drizzled with truffle sauce and shaved black truffles, then lain inside a brioche truffle bun. Would you like fries with that? The side dish is a bottle of 1995 Chateau Petrus Bordeaux with the finest crystal glasses which you get to take home with you. No need to keep the bill at the end of the night because you are presented with a certificate of authenticity to prove to all your friends and fans that you truly ate a $5,000 burger.
$2,420 White Truffle and Gold Pizza at Margo's in Malta
No ordinary dinner, this pizza pie contains special truffles flown in from abroad, as well as organic water buffalo mozzarella and a 24-carat gold leaf as a garnish. If you like being spontaneous, this wouldn’t be a good choice for a meal because you must order this pizza a week in advance and only from October to May, which is when truffles are in season.
